Friday BROW CHAKRA

FRIDAY resonates with the SIXTH chakra — the BROW, also known as the Third Eye located between and above your two eyebrows. Your psychic abilities and imagination are associated with the chakra. Being in the flow of life is a main function of this chakra.

The BROW chakra vibrates to the key of A and is associated with the color INDIGO/VIOLET. It is pretty much in control of our pituitary  and pineal glands as well as eyesight.

The pituitary gland is a pea-sized structure located at the base of the brain, just below the hypothalamus, to which it is attached via nerve fibers. It is part of the endocrine system and produces critical hormones, which are chemical substances that  control various bodily functions.

The Pineal gland, another of the endocrine system organs, is located deep in the center of the brain and was once known as the “third eye.” (story on recent discovery of an actual third eye that I will share one day). The pineal gland produces melatonin, which helps maintain circadian rhythm and regulate reproductive hormones.

Energize your pineal gland, which controls your body’s biorhythms and works with your pituitary & hypothalamus to direct activities such as thirst, hunger, sexual desire, and your biological clock

This chakra is a spinning vortex of biophysical energy or “Wheel of Light” that absorbs and transmits universal energy in and out of our  body. Not only does it represents  the pituitary and pineal gland but sub-conscious and conscious states of mind as well.

The chakra system is an integral part in maintaining the overall health and well being of the mind, body and spirit, balancing our “Prana” or “Life Force”.       The reason this matters is because our emotions affect  the vibrations and energy of the chakras and therefore of the bodily functions.

When this chakra is balanced we feel clear, focused, and can determine between truth and illusion. We are open to receiving wisdom and insight.   Negative feelings and emotions put your chakras off their game. Mostly, these are related to low self-esteem!
It is believed that each of the chakras absorb and filters the energy that we emit through our thoughts and actions as well as through the thoughts and actions of all those that we come into contact with. When one of the chakras is out of balance as a result of negative energy flowing through it, it begins to spin too slowly or too fast. When a chakra is not balanced, it can effect that physical region of the body and also effect very specific aspects of our spiritual and emotional selves.   So chose positive people and think positive thoughts for your health and, as Thich Nhat Hanh would say, “for the health of the world”.

Opening the 3rd Eye, a swirling indigo field of energy  provides insight into our real selves  and allows  us to see the inner and outer worlds.

CRYSTALS:   Kyanite crystal

Let your intentions be known as they  are the most powerful chakra therapy:                    ” I envision and create beauty and goodness.”
“My imagination is vivid and powerful.”                                                                                           ” I SEE the big picture”

FRAGRANCE: Diffusing  Bay Laurel  or Carrot Seed can balance and open this sixth chakra for clarity of thought, clear seeing, and spiritual insight.                      Carrot Seed—-One of the quintessential third eye chakra essential oils, has long been known to aid healing of the eyesight and is great for the our skin in lotions, or diluted 50:50 in carrier oils.                                                                                                                           On the spiritual level, Carrot Seed essential oil helps us to stay grounded while allowing for clear seeing of reality as it unfolds. Carrot Seed oil harmonizes the subtle, or spiritual body with the physical body, allowing us to stay present on the physical plane of existence while experiencing visions and spiritual insights.  Repeat your intentions as you inhale the fragrance.

YOGA and MEDITATION:                                                                                                                                         Downward Facing Dog,
Concentrate on your indigo colored energy field circulating between your brows and on your intention to SEE the big picture  and to create goodness and beauty as you hold this position.

Come down on the floor and kneel on all fours with your back flat.
Walk your hands farther forward, your palms flat on the floor. Spread your fingers and establish firm contact with the floor.
Exhale and lift your tailbone straightening your legs and keeping your feet flat on the floor. Lengthen your tailbone away from the pelvis. Keep lifting your sit bones towards the ceiling.
Strengthen your knees, but make sure you do not lock them.
Your hands and arms are straight, keep firm contact with the floor, pressing your palms into the mat.
Downward facing dog is a wonderful pose to calm the mind and energize the whole body. You can stay in this pose for 1-3 minutes focusing on your insightful third eye.

Come down  onto our knees, put your hands before the lower part of your breast. The middle fingers are straight and touch at the tops, pointing forward. The other fingers are bended and touch at the upper two phalanges. The thumbs point towards you and touch at the tops.
Concentrate on the Third Eye chakra slightly above the point between the eyebrows.
Chant the sound OM or AUM.Be still, sit quietly and pay attention only to your breathing letting all thoughts of the mind drift away like clouds.  As your awareness goes deeper inner treasures  of the real you become apparent. Meditation simply enables us to connect to them.

Thunderbolt Pose, Vajrasana                                                                                                       Sit on your heels with your spine straight and your knees about hip width apart. Rest your palms on your thighs. You can place a towel underneath your buttocks if your knees feel uncomfortable.
With your spine straight release all your weight down through your sit bones.
Breathe in and out through your nose.
Allow your spine to lengthen upwards and your shoulders release and widen.
Allow your gaze to gently rest on the floor about 4 feet in front of you.( good place for a candle and your crystals)
Continue breathing and observe your thoughts. Watch them like clouds on a sunny day passing you by. Do not become engaged with the thoughts, just allow them to pass by.
With this pose, you are cultivating “witness” consciousness or being the “detached observer”. You do not engage with your thoughts, you simply allow them to pass by as if you were watching clouds drift away on a sunny day.
The effects of cultivating this ability to observe your thoughts and not be engaged in the story, are amazing. You will find having more compassion for yourself, you will begin to see patterns of behavior that do not serve you and you will be able to gradually change these patterns. You will experience greater unity with others and the world around you. You will experience greater peace, inner knowing, and joy.

 The sacred thunderbolt pose is a sort of weapon used to get rid of our most powerful enemy – the one within – our inner critic and our judgments that make us feel not good enough.

The power of this pose is observation. It is by observing thoughts and not engaging with them further that we can be released from the grip of these thoughts.
We know from quantum physics that observation impacts that which is being observed. When we simply observe in this pose, we are becoming whole again.  If you give thoughts your attention they become excited and take over as that is what the ego does best–control.  Tell it, “NO” not this time”

finished the yoga exercises with Child’s Pose,  connecting your ‘third eye’ center with the energy of the Earth.

SEE YA Later thoughts with LOVE:

Through your day, when ere you think of it,  hum  ‘La’ on the ‘Sound of Music’ scale or chant “OM” while thinking on your third eye swirling in indigo. Feel the vibration.

For more vibration you can either use a singing bowl or any other instrument to have a continuous vibration at a specific frequency;

Essentially, when you sing or chant each note, you want to hold that note until you physically feel a resonance in your throat; if you’re highly attuned to your body, you may feel the resonance in other parts of your body as well, but if you don’t, it’s still there, doing its job.

Visualize the sound frequencies vibrating in the chakra, clearing out any blockages much like ultrasound therapy breaks up crystals in the gallbladder or urinary tract. It’s really the same concept, except that the blockages you are dealing with in the chakras are not of a physical nature.

Use the Indigo colors  in your home, and in your wardrobe – in fact, create a symphony of color and sound within you, allowing the frequencies to mesh and harmonize.

Imagine your happy sparkly visionary day SEEING and creating BEAUTY and GOODNESS

Relish the visionary indigo glow of your third-eye’s insight.  Stay POSITIVE.

Namaste,

WHAT A DAY!

TUESDAY is SOLAR PLEXUS DAY

Tuesday MARCH 8th is SOLAR  ECLIPSE DAY

A total solar eclipse  heightens all energies on Earth.

Path of the Solar Eclipse on March 8, 2016

A total solar eclipse heightens  all energies on Earth even if it can’t be viewed in most of the Americas. It is still quite  magical, as the luminous disc of sunlight appears as a ring of fire in the sky when it is blocked out by the new moon at the fartherest point in her orbit. Some people believe when these celestial bodies align, and the sun is obscured from our view, other things come to light for us on Earth. For centuries, eclipses have been viewed as rare, magical occurrences, while being feared and looked upon as “bad omens” by the superstitious (you know – the ones who, once upon a time, burnt wise women at the stake as witches and heretics).

The wise have been aware of our close relation to the movements of the solar system for centuries. As you work with the powerful energy of this eclipse, turn your attention to the powerful Sun, the very star that gives life to our Mother Earth, giving thanks for the sustenance its rays bring. And forget not the Moon, without whom this eclipse would not be possible.

************************

For those who like starry things: March’s new moon in Pisces brings the supercharged energies of dreams, rebirth, change, and new beginnings here on Earth. Pisces says dream; new moon says start, and with eclipse energy shining light on areas that need attention and forcing events into play that will usher you forward.  Take this period as a sign to turn your gaze inward, taking stock of where you are on your personal journey.

*************************

FRAGRANCES: Rosemary and Lemon in the diffuser and, diluted, on your solar plexus.

For a solar plexus empowering perfume oil to inspire confidence and stability mix  5 drops lemon essential oil, 3 drops jasmine absolute essential oil and   5 drops frankincense essential oil with 1/2 ounce sweet almond oil. Dab behind the ears, wear directly on the solar plexus or apply as an aromatic body oil after shower. 

CRYSTALS: Citrine or Kyanite ( any color of Kyanite may be used to create the chakra alignment. Its use will aid in the general flow of energy throughout the body)

SOUNDS:  Search for ‘Meditation Music for the Solar Plexus’ and choose one.  There is even a Kundalini Solar Eclipse chant

MEDITATION:

Light a candle–a simple white one will do, The Solar Plexus is the FIRE in our belly.

Relax and turn within, focusing on our breath, on your candle flame, and on your intention to see if there are any fears that could be holding you back  from doing what you want to be doing.   Let the fears GO. Release them without explanation.

Now, breathe in super charged energy, filling yourself. When you are full of the golden energy, push it outside yourself into your aura, forming a protective shield around you.

————————-

Give yourself the permission and the means (yes, this includes he money), to be who you are REGARDLESS OF WHAT ANYBODY ELSE THINKS OR BELIEVES IS POSSIBLE.  Do not deny yourself the life you want to live because you’re worried you’re not good enough or that you’ll be judged or that it’s too risky, because who does that benefit? No one, that’s who.  When you live your life doing the things that turn you on, that you’re good at that bring you joy, that make you shove stuff in people’s faces and scream, “check this out!!!” You walk around so lit up that you shoot sunbeams out of yer eyeballs.  Which automatically lights up the world around you.  Which is precisely why you are here: to shine your big-as ball of fire onto this world of ours.  A world that literally depends upon light to survive.  Believe, really believe that what you desire is here and available to you and you can have it all. ….from ‘You are a badass”by Jen Sincero

——————–

Put your hands before your stomach, slightly below your solar plexus. Let the fingers join at the tops, all pointing away from you. Cross the thumbs. It is important to straighten the fingers.

Concentrate on the Navel chakra located on the spine, a bit above the level of the navel.

Chant the sound RAM.

YOGA:  Navel Chakra (Manipura): Boat Pose (Paripurna Navasana)

image

Lesson:  The lesson of the third chakra involves replacing insecurities with confidence so practice Boat Pose  allowing yourself to shake and feel the burn in your core offering you the opportunity to summon the inner strength to keep going and know that YOU CAN DO IT!

Affirmation: Repeat, “I am confident and worthy.”

Throughout the day, visualize the golden glow as the moon blocks out the sun and know that whatever gets in the way of your glow will soon move on and your shine will be just as bright as it was.   If you have an opportunity  find a quiet spot, preferably near water, and do “The Great Sunshine” mediation. Face the Sun with your feet shoulder width apart, arms raised, palms and head facing up. Visualize warm rays entering your body through the center of your forehead and palms, circling around the solar plexus and exiting through the soles of your feet. It’s sunlight for your soul!!!!!!!

 

Solar Plexus———————-

In addition to the chakra clearing and balancing meditations, there are several ways that you can focus your energy and intention on balancing and clearing the Solar Plexus Chakra. Connect with the mineral energies of citrine, yellow or gold topaz, tiger’s eye, amber, and gold. Use spices that are warming and aid digestion, such as ginger, peppermint, turmeric, cumin, and fennel. Drink ginger, peppermint, or chamomile tea. Gift yourself a sunflower. Practice exercises that strengthen the core muscles. Become aware of your thoughts, particularly those you have about yourself, and consciously choose to transform negative thoughts into positive ones. Begin a meditation practice, if you have not done so already, in order to still the mind of the ego in order to hear the voice of the Soul. Realize that you are your own Creator, you are the Architect of your reality, and as such you are the most powerful person in your world.
